Bethel Manor Reborn

by: Beatrice Fishback

James and Clare Blackwell have been happily married five years and now desire to start a family. Clare’s pregnancy results in the birth of their son George, who brings not only great joy, but profound heartache. Because of a deathly illness after the birth, Clare loses her eyesight and must come to terms with this new reality. She slides into the trap of self-pity and victimhood, shuns James, and isolates herself from him and her family.

Confused by the changes in his strong and independent Clare, James seeks solace in their friends and neighbors Phoebe and Patrick Tripp. He misses a woman’s companionship, and with Patrick gone on business trips to London on a regular basis, James begins to spend an inordinate amount of time with Phoebe.

Simeon Quire, enemy of the Blackwells, discovers the blossoming relationship between Phoebe and James. With this information, he disguises himself as a manservant and manages to get a job at Bethel Manor with the sole intention of tarnishing the Blackwell name and ruining the estate in the process.

The beautiful Bethel Manor is affected by the neglect of James and Clare and the grounds and home begins to decay. Will the Blackwells be able to redeem their marriage, and is it ever too late for God’s power of forgiveness to overcome family tragedies?
